The sapphire is one of the three gem-varieties of corundum, the other two being ruby – defined as corundum in a shade of red—and padparadscha—a pinkish orange variety. The most valuable color is blue sapphire, and Burmese and Kashmir blue sapphires are the most sought-after gemstones.
Sapphire is remarkably hard material, and is widely used not only in jewelry but also for example scientific instruments, durable glass, wristwatch crystals and more.
Sapphire is the traditional birthstone for the month of September. Fancy sapphires can be found in any other color than blue; the jewelry has vibrant, saturated color, pure hues, and good translucency. Take a look at our best selection of Sapphire jewelry below.
